The ATLAS MAIOR, the cartographical masterpiece of the Baroque, was brought out in 1662 and 1665 by the Amsterdam publisher Joan Blaeu, one of Holland's leading cartographers. Originally appearing in Latin, the atlas comprised 594 maps in 11 volumes, which depicted the whole of the world as known to early modern Europe. It was the largest and most expensive book to be published during the seventeenth century. For more than 100 years it remained the definitive atlas of the world, and today is one of the most sought-after and valuable antiquarian rarities. TASCHEN's bibliophile reprint of this costly atlas is based on the hand-colored copy with gilt highlights now in the Austrian National Library in Vienna. Alongside original quotes from Joan Blaeu relating to the individual maps, the new text by Peter van der Krogt explains the historical and cultural associations and introduces the reader to the fascinating world of early modern cartography. Large format. Two volumes. Colour maps, 58 of England, 55 of Scotland and Ireland. The text is in English, French and German. Contained in pictorial slipcase. ISBN: 9783822851043. Light bumping to top & tail of spines and light scuffing to boards. Dustwrappers have minor rubbing to corners. A lovely set contained in publisher's slipcase in almost fine condition.
